An Akron father is accused of beating his 5-year-old daughter for failing to recognize parts of the alphabet, police said.
Christopher D. Curry, 39, is charged with felonious assault, child endangering and domestic violence. His daughter was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital on Tuesday with multiple bruises and cuts, including a nearly swollen shut left eye. Her condition Thursday was not available.
According to Akron police, the 5-foot-10, 297-pound Curry became angry when his daughter struggled to recognize the letter D while doing schoolwork inside their Douglas Street home on Tuesday night.
Police said he lifted the girl by her neck and struck her in the head multiple times. He also whipped the girl with a belt, witnesses told police.
Officers called to the home at about 10:30 p.m. found the girl screaming and crying. She had knots on her head and a cut lip, according to the report.
Curry was booked into the Summit County Jail on Wednesday and was being held on a $100,000 bond set in Akron Municipal Court. Summit County Children Services was contacted.
